In the heart of Chianti, between Siena and Florence, lies the imposing castle of Meleto, now home to a charming farm that produces excellent wine. The Castle of Meleto dates back, in its oldest parts, to the year 1000. It belonged to the Benedictine monks and then to the Ricasoli family. They took possession of the castle in 1200, and enlarged the building in 1700.
Since 1968, the Viticola Toscana Spa, a farm surrounded by vineyards specialized in production of Chianti Classico DOCG, bought the property. In the basement of the castle, there is a true historical monument, a wine cellar where you can taste wines, extra virgin organic olive oil and salami of Cinta Senese.
